if not then convert to 3.0 first then upgrade to 3.2

sorry, what does that mean? do you want to convert a xenforo board to phpbb or not?

if you want to combine your xenforo with your current phpbb, that would take a lot more work and a lot more specially coded convertors/merging scripts.

It's not impossible but you will need a complex script to do it and to the best of my knowledge there is no such script available.

Ok, I understand.

In this case, I talk with the current admin of xenforo, like my phpbb3 forum its reently with very little users and posts, I think in close my forum for new registers and posts and when the current admin of xenforo, transfer to me the xenforo, convert to phpbb3, in this case, its this possible?
I very like phpbb3...

Very surprised to see there's still no good support for XF -> PHPBB3 conversion... the only one publicly available now is the XF 1.1 -> PHPBB 3.0 converter. However, there are still a slew of DB errors that I have to wade my way through.

You could use XF's importers to merge the other phpBB with the Xenforo prior to converting the XF to phpBB3.2 but I'm not sure of the exact conversion/upgrade path you'd need to take.

Otherwise there are some businesses out there who specialize in converting forums from one software to another and you may have to shop for one that can deliver what you need.

I switched to XF back in 2013 and while things are good now, between the licensing and the add-ons maintaining its is a non-trivial amount of money and it would be really nice to come back to good old phpBB if I ever needed to for cost reasons, et cetera. So I'd love to see an XF to PHPBB converter. I guess one issue is now that XF2 is out, you've have to make 2 converters (one for XF 1.5 and one for XF2) to cover everyone.

Maybe there's some sort of bizarre but workable conversion path like XF 1.5 to IPB 4.x to SMF to PHPBB3 or something?

Why are you replying to a year old topic? Neither the OP or the last poster have been here since 2017.

This was the only XF to phpBB converter thread that I found. I want it to be known there's still people interested in this converter.

Unless you have anything to add that will assist the OP it’s always best you start your own topics especially as this one is over a year old.
